The sugar bowl

afternoon folks!!....well the car came back from the car doctors and the damage to the craft budget was not as bad as we thought!! the garage phoned to say that the front tyres were getting rather worn ,we knew this as they were mentioned after the m.o.t earlier in the year so we had those replaced too, when hubby went to pick the car up they said only the exhaust seal had gone and as we'd bought the new tyres they fixed the seal for free !!!my favourite price !!! will deffo be using that garage again !!



this is my entry for the sugar bowl challenge a fabby sketch by marlene and the added element is buttons, though because this card is being given to a 2 year old i decided fake ones would be a bit safer
the papers are basic grey 'cupcake' the image is a sugar nellie 'dexter the bear ' coloured with promarkers and cut with nesties the ribbon is from my stash and the yellow card is embossed with the swiss dots folder.

thanks for popping in

Hugs

Hiya! Well.. what a beautiful card! With you when it comes to Basic Grey & Sugar Nellie.
Pop in the shop to teach me how to do bows like that, tried knots and rabbit ears but mine never look as good as that!!
Big hugs back to you.
